Coffee Talk: Reviewing What I've Ready Lately


have you read anything good lately?

I've been trying to get back into the reading swing of things. I used to read ALL of the time and prioritize it every day, but in the last few years I've dropped off the reading train.

In an effort to crack a few more books, here are four I've read so far this year that I'm loving:

one // remodelista | the organized home

This is less of a book and more of a coffee table book, but I loved it nonetheless. One of my favorite things about Real Simple (the magazine) is all of the home organization tips, and Remodelista is like that but in book form. There are tips on how to keep every area of your home organized and tidy, from your kitchen to entryway and more. I left feeling so inspired to de-clutter my life and rethink my space!

two // the subtle art of not giving a f*ck

God, I needed this book! I am someone who cares A LOT about EVERYTHING. This book opened my eyes to a new way of viewing the world. Instead of thinking things always have to be so happy and cheery all the time (and putting SO much pressure on yourself to get there), this book helps you understand how sometimes you just have to go with the flow and embrace all of the uncertainties in life.

three // commonwealth

I've been wanting to read Commonwealth forever, and I'm so glad I finally made the time. It takes so many twists and turns I never expected, and the entire book spans over five decades. If you're looking for a juicy read that you won't be able to put down—and that's actually extremely well-written—look no further.

four // fates and furies

Fates and Furies is a long one (I was only able to finish it because of a few long flights and delays), but every page kept me wishing there were 100 more. This book takes such an interesting look at relationships, marriage, and is unlike your normal "beach read".
